Ingrients & Directions


2 c All-purpose flour
1 tb Baking powder
1 ts Salt
1/3 c Vegetable shortening
3/4 c Milk
3 tb Melted butter
1/2 c Firmly packed dark brown sug
3/4 ts Cinnamon
1/2 c Chopped pecans

PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 450F. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a
large mixing bowl. Cut in the vegetable shortening using a pastry blender
or two knives until the mixture has the consistency of coarse crumbs. Add
the milk, adding more milk if necessary so the dough is pliable but is
still wet. Turn the dough onto a heavily floured surface, and knead it
lightly (8 to 10 times). Do not overwork the dough. Roll the dough into a
rectangle 1/3-inch thick. Mix the melted butter with the brown sugar,
cinnamon and nuts. Press the mixture into one half of the dough, then fold
the dough over to encase the filling, pressing it lightly to adhere. Cut
out biscuits with a 2-inch round cutter (the diameter of a juice can),
dipping the cutter in flour between cutting each biscuit so they do not
stick. Place the biscuits on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in the
center of the oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve
immediately, or bake up to 2 hours in advance and reheat for 5 minutes in a
300F oven. Makes 12 to 14. These biscuits are delicious served warm with
sweet butter or apple butter.
